there are a number of ways my father started when he was in his teens later in life he developed both leukemia and C.O.P.D.
he bodies ability to carry oxygen to the blood was compromised the doctors tired to get him to quit and I tried the doctor told me not to bug him that if I did it would only make things worse, so he ended back in the hospital with an episode of copd complications the respiratory department did chest compressions in order to help him clear his lungs he looked at the color of phlem that came from inside once he was well enough to come home he said I am done, no more of those, he was 88 at the time, the doctor and I talked he advised me not to allow him to run out he said if he does he will have a rough time and will find a way to go get them nevertheless 4 months later he passed away he left behind 4 packs in the desk drawer, I think there are a number of good ways to stop, but I learned a lesson in order to help him allow him to make his own decision, he saw proof of what they were doing to him and it convinced him that it was making his life more difficult and even shorter even though it didn't save him he made his breathing easier and you know I think he felt better not only physically but also felt good about himself
The main thing is to really, really want to quit. If you don't truly want to quit all the smoking cessation aids in the world will not help you quit. Really making up your mind to quit is the single most important thing to do. It is a difficult road so having the mind set to overcome the addiction is first and foremost. Once you truly make up your mind look into the different smoking cessation aids and set a date to quit. Look into some smoking cessation counselling. If you have health insurance call the company and ask if they have a smoking cessation program. Many are now offering to pay for aids and counselling. Good Luck and hang in there. It can be done. I smoked a pack a day for years and I quit but the making up my mind was the most important factor. The will power to do it helped me through. Listing all the reasons to quit is a good way to start.
